Beak - El Hacedor EP [mtk150]

by Beak

Published


We've made release #150 in style, thanks to Monotonik artist Beak, who previously released the much-loved 'Amoral Mayor Earwig EP' last year. This time, he's returned with the guitar-idm specialness of 'El Hacedor EP', featuring three tracks originally composed for the Project168 collective's efforts earlier in 2005, and his mix of contemplative acoustics and carefully nimble percussion.

We start proceedings with 'Baileyi', all peaking hi-hats, wolf howls, and carefully picked guitars, before moving on to the beautifully slowed-down 'The Maker', which gently weeps while pirouetting around the subject - much more a Spanish lament than anything that can be classed 'intelligent dance music', whatever the heck that means. Finally, we have 'He Descends Into His Memory', which is spectacularly complex, wonderfully driving, and a suitably fitting end to this touching sophomore effort. Long may Beak keep quacking.

Fans of Amon Tobin's early catalog may feel they've heard this before (and I suspect both Tobin and Beak may have drawn from the same sample sources), but for me the acoustic guitar work really adds a new depth and sonic interest.
